Changing comma to dot as a decimal point?
on May 29, 2020 at 12:10:56 pm

I know this must be a regional thing, but is there any setting to change it? I mostly use the numpad and it's making me way too slow when typing numbers.

Someone asked this a few years ago and Dan Ebberts suggested:

s = s.replace(".",",");

Here’s it in context: https://forums.creativecow.net/docs/forums/post.php?forumid=227&postid=3611...

Thanks for the answer but I don't have this problem with expressions, only in the UI.
For example in an expressions I'd type 2.5 which suits me, but in the UI I have to type 2,5.

I know what you're asking, but like you I'm at a loss to find the setting. I imagine it must be really frustrating. Had a playaround myself and this expression (as a workaround_ will overwrite all periods / dots with a comma:

replace(/[.]/g, ",");



And this is the reverse, if I've misunderstood you:
replace(/[,]/g, ".");

The only setting in Preferences I could spot was in the Type setting, where I can choose between Latin and South Asian.
Could it be the font you've selected?
